: our chief political correspondent byron york joins us. what was that? >> first, that was an image of a rich man urinating on a group of poor people, but it was an 8-minute video and it begins with a once possible upon a tif fairy tale where things were wonderful and the rich caused the economic collapse which caused so much suffering in 2008, 9, 10. it's a political commercial. if you go to this website of the california federation of teachers, click on it. it says oh, please send this to pruyour friends and please click this and you put in your zip code, it has a prewritten e-mail for you to send your member of congress or your senator a note saying please vote to return the top marc marginal income tax rao pre2001 levels. it's a commercial designed to make sure that the bush tax cuts for the top bracket expire. >> greta: all right. here's the interesting thing. it's a california federation of teachers that's releasing it. california can now show the nation because california now after this election i has a democratic governor and their house and their senator are super majoriti

. mccormack and byron york. >> a couple things caused the legislator to go ahead and pass it and then the protests. one is the wave of union-limiting legislation and action that's taken place in wisconsin, and indiana pass add right to work act earlier this year. and the other thing is the unions tried a new tactic to try to cut this off, is they proposed something called proposal 2 in michigan, which would have put collective bargaining rights into the constitution and would have made it unconstitutional to pass something like what we saw today. it lost 58-42. and i think that emboldens the republicans who wanted to go ahead and turn michigan into a right to work state. >> byron is right. this was the exact thing they voters for obama decided to shoot down this union bill. >> it's surprising. >> it caught us all by surprise. it isn't going to be like wisconsin. i think this bill is going to pass. and the situation in wisconsin was different. you had to get a quorum, and they tried to prevent a vote on the bill and took a month of protests. i don't think that will happen.
